One of England’s finest and most complete Jacobean houses dating from 1612. When it was taken over by the National Trust a few years ago it was described as a time warp as nothing had been altered in the house for so many years. The National Trust has now restored the house sympathetically, retaining the impression that time stood still in the house – as well it might after nearly 400 years of occupancy by the same family.
The house contains a mixture of rare and everyday objects. The gardens have a Jacobean layout.
